Blog Ahead: Goal Post

blog ahead

In november I will be participating in Blog Ahead, a challenge that is hosted by Anna from Herding Cats and Burnign Soup. You can read more about this challenge on her blog.

The basic goal is to get “ahead” in your blog posts. It’s a A bloggery version of NaNoWriMo that runs from November 1-30th, 2014. The standard goal is to get 30 posts ahead, so if you start the month with 5 scheduled posts you have to end with 30. As I thought that goal was a bit too high I am aiming to end the month with at leats 5 scheduled posts more then I started with. Today is the last day before October and I am currently having 15 scheduled posts, of which 8 are scheduled for November. Having around 10 scheduled posts at any given moment is pretty normal for me. So that means I have to write and schedule at least 13 posts this month. 8 to compensate for the posts that are scheduled for this month and another 5 to get ahead. I probably also will write a few posts like reviews for this month, which will be published in this month as wel, so those won’t count towards this goal. Wish me Good Luck!

If you’re also participating in this challenge let me know how many scheduled posts you have now and how much more you want to have at the end of the month!

  1. I won’t be joining since I’m doing NaNoWriMo, but for exactly that reason I’ve been scheduling more posts in advance as well, so I don’t have to worry about gaps in November. We currently have 9 posts scheduled for November, and some drafts that are close to ready to go.

    In any case, good luck! 🙂 I hope you can reach your goal!

    • Thanks Inge :). I love being ahead and it just feels nice to not have to worry about those posts as they are already scheduled. I don’t use drafts a lot, I usually just schedule the posts and try to remember to spell and grammar check them again before it going live.

    • I know I have about 10 posts for november I still have to write and a lot of those scheduled posts are for November, so I have to compensate for that. I liek your goal of hoping to havemost of December posts setup by the end of November! For my sunday posts I always make them the week itself, early in the weke I coyp and paste my last sunday post and then keep adding things until it’s sunday.
      You good luck as well!
